  • About Emily Ballesteros

    Emily Ballesteros is on a mission to help employees and individuals beat burnout—forever. While burnout is often cited in relation to work/life balance, stress, and mental health challenges, there are very few actionable strategies to address the problem. Using her expertise in organizational psychology and personal experience, Ballesteros offers tangible tools for burnout management.

    In engaging lectures and workshops for companies, colleges and universities, non-profits, and various other organizations, Ballesteros shows audiences and participants how to break burnout habits, create sustainable work/life-balance, set boundaries, and manage stress.

    Ballesteros’ book, The Cure for Burnout: How to Build Better Habits, Find Balance, and Reclaim Your Life, combines scientific and cultural research and the tried-and-true tactics she has implemented with clients to combat burnout. The Cure for Burnout provides a holistic method for burnout management to address the epidemic of an always-on, chronically overextended culture, empowering readers to reclaim control of their lives.

    Emily Ballesteros’ experience with burnout comes from her training in industrial-organizational psychology, hours of working with clients from a range of Fortune 500 companies, as well as personal experience. While receiving her Master’s and working in corporate training and development, Ballesteros experienced exhaustion and burnout. Unable to find resources and comprehensive burnout management training, she set out to develop her own treatment method.

    Ballesteros’ work has been featured in media such as The Wall Street Journal and CNBC. She regularly provides burnout trainings for corporations like PepsiCo, Salesforce, and Thermo Fisher Scientific, among others.

She will teach universal boundary-setting techniques and tools to recalibrate existing habits.

    Generation Gaps in the Workplace

    The 25 million millennial workers who suffer from burnout, dream of quiet quitting, or switch jobs every two years are costing our economy billions of dollars and limiting the career- and life-satisfaction of an entire generation. The Great Resignation made hiring and retention harder than ever, and senior management want to understand why millennials are leaving their jobs. In this keynote or panel discussion geared toward leaders across all industries, Emily Ballesteros will help bridge the gap between generations in the workplace.

    Marie Forleo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything is Figureoutable

    This is not the kind of book you read and then decide if you want to change; reading this book changes you. You’ll learn how to set limits, honor yourself, and build a life you enjoy waking up to. You’ll also learn how to create real-life, actual spare time. Spare time! Funny, wise, and full of apply-today knowledge, I loved this total reset of a book.
